Cookie Weekend!

Quick post today! :) This weekend was a lot of fun and FULL of junk food! My husband made a bunch of cookies for our Christmas party on Saturday. Then on Sunday we went to my mom's and the kids decorated some gingerbread men. :) Well they mostly just dumped sprinkles on them and ate all the chocolate chips, but they did have fun! :) With all the cookies in their various forms around this weekend, I decided that Christmas cookies would be a good theme for today's mini treasury! Enjoy! :)

Have a great day!

The Month of Turquoise

See I told you I'd be back! ;) I have been a busy little bee lately. I had two birthday parties, a cookie swap and a craft show last weekend. This week I have to clean the whole house and decorate (cause I have nothing up yet), because this weekend I have a Christmas party at my house and cookie party for my kids! December is nuts this year! :) Oh and I haven't started Christmas shopping yet! :o

So I'm sure at this point your asking yourself why I'm blogging at all. Well, partly because I'm crazy, and partly because this is way more fun then cleaning my house! :) And in the spirit of procrastination I've not only taken the time to do a blog post, but I've also done a December birthstone mini treasury. Hope you enjoy this collection of turquoise treasures! :)

Geek Pride Day!

Happy Geek Pride Day everyone! :) Today is all about ending bullying and celebrating what makes us all different! It was inspired by a little girl named Katie who was bullied at school for liking Star Wars. The boys in her class said girls weren't allowed to like Star Wars because it was only for boys! Her mother found out about it and posted about it on her blog. The response from the geek community was incredible! :D You can read the whole story on

Katie's school is having a Proud To Be Me Day today, where all the students and teachers are coming to school wearing their favorite character t-shirt, whether it's Star Wars, My Little Pony, or NASCAR, to show that we can all be different and all still be friends. In support of these great kids doing their best to increase understanding and end bullying, geeks across the globe are all sporting their favorite geeky t-shirts. You can check out the latest on Geek Pride Day by checking out the Twitter tag #MayTheForceBeWithKatie.

Katie was also offered many toys and gifts from her new fans. While she was grateful to receive so many gifts and offers of gifts, her and her mother would like to offer a challenge instead. Today if you can afford it, donate a toy to your local hospital or children's charity to help support our future geeks and make a less fortunate child's Christmas a little bit happier. :) If you're not sure where you can donate toys in your area, I would suggest checking out Child's Play an organization run by the people at Penny-Arcade that donates toys to local hospitals, or Toys For Tots which is run by the U.S. Marine Corps.

In honor of geeks everywhere I would like to present today's mini treasury, chock full of delicious geekiness! Enjoy! :)

Hello again! :)

I am in fact alive, I've just been ridiculously busy lately. I've also been having trouble with my wrists, which is why I haven't posted in awhile. But I wanted to make sure I wished all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or just a Happy Holiday in general! I'll hopefully be going back to posting at least once a week this month, then back to posting a few times a week come January. If I don't see you before January, I hope you enjoy the love and friendship of the holiday season!

Have a great day! :)
